"I've enjoyed the virtual training environment. Other's questions help to learn more. The best part of this training, no need to travel to another state and disrupt your professional life as well as personal life in order to get trained. My hat's off to SpecLink for offering Virtual Training."  Virtual Class, April 2012

“The class was very good.  I am already applying some of the stuff I learned to a spec I am working on today.  The instructor was very good, I would recommend the class to anyone interested in the SpecLink E program.”  – Chicago, April 2011

“I want to thank you for your clear and informative classes.  You have successfully demystified the software for many of our users.  One user said he had learned more in the first half day of training than he had learned on his own in several weeks.  Thank you for a job well done.”  Los Angeles – February 2011

"Since the training class, I have been using the heck out of the software! I am much more comfortable in it now. I actually enjoy doing specs now, and that is a sickness!”  -  Regional Class, February 2009

"Having used SpecLink for several years, I had not taken a class before and seeing how the linking and non-printing checklists work will make our SpecLink use much more beneficial to our office." - Michigan, March 2009

"The smaller class size was helpful for 'one on one' instruction." -- Seattle 2008

"Well paced. Perfect proportion of instruction, demonstration, and hands on activity. The lessons did not drag - good content and well suited for a variety of users. Easy to stay engaged." - On-site training, Texas, 2007
